Have you ever thought about how important the sewage system is? What is the role of sewage installation services? You ever thought what could happen if all the water that is being used in a property it doesn’t go away? These are some questions that people may ask themselves about sewage installation services. The sewage system is a system since the ancient times, that is able to remove the water that has been used in a property for safety reasons, will be moved usually through pipes or channels to the underground. What is the whole purpose of that? Once the dirty water is being used for washing something over and over again, then dangerous bacteria are getting produced. They can damage people’s health, and in some cases to be fatal. This is the one thing that is well known since many years ago, so people know how important is to have good sewage installed.
Have you ever seen a house or a building with without water supply? If the building has a water supply, then it must have also a sewage system. Of course, not everywhere the sewage system is the same. It will be different in single houses, different in semi-detached houses and different in an apartments building. In the apartment building, for example, they are all connected with larger sewage pipes from the top of the building to the bottom. However, there is a single main sewage pipe that goes down the ground, once the water will leave the apartment. In this way, it will save space that is being used for the pipes to go through the walls down the ground. In an apartment’s building, it is very rare to have sewage issues, because the pipes that have been used for its sewage installation are usually much wider than the ones of a single house.
Once everything that will go out from your house through the sewage system, it will connect with the city’s central sewage. A city’s sewage system it collects everything that goes out from every single building in the city and takes to specific places. In those places, is happening what is called biologic cleaning of wastewater. Biological cleaning of wastewater is a process that all the water that went down the sewers will get cleaned up and all the harmful bacteria will be killed, so will be biologically friendly and with no danger of serious disease to people or to the animals around that area. But is really the reason of that biological cleaning? Just imagine all the wastewater from the whole city to be collected down in a single spot. Day by day, it will pile more and more with more bacteria to be created. The first thing that will be infected will be the animals around the area. Even if is far out of the city, many people will get serious diseases from the birds that will carry them over. So, what is happening at this point? It goes back to the people.
It doesn’t matter if you are having an individual septic field or your sewage is connected to the city’s sewers. A sewage system must be installed right from the beginning in a new house. The installation is not something that you can do it by yourself. In most of the times, the ground must be dug a few yards deep. Special machines need to be used for this job. The pipes need to have a special angle also, so all the wastewater will go downwards and will not stay inside the pipes or go backwards into the house.
After many years of researches, with a lot of different ways that have been tested and different materials that have been used through the time, sewage installation services have come to a level, where they are able to get the best solution for the job you are looking them for. Every house’s wastewater, once it leaves the house, it goes first to a septic tank. The septic tank collects all the sludge in the bottom of it, whatever will go to the septic field or down the city’s sewers, will be just water. Imagine what could happen if septic tanks were not invented. All the sludge in the water from human’s and food’s disposals would be collected down the sewers and most of the times it would cause problems of blocking the water flow. Once this would happen, especially in a big city’s sewers, that would be a very serious problem to have it fixed. Down the sewers water from the rain is also getting collected. So, what would happen if the sewers are filled with sludge, and it is raining more than usual? It would cause a clog that area would overflow. In the worst case scenario, it would destroy the road by lifting it up because of the pressure underground.

Are you making a complete makeover at your house, so you thought you may need to change the sewer pipes? Or you have noticed a leak and you want the problem to be sorted? In any case, you need to hire a sewer company. Usually, sewage installation companies are more limited than plumbing companies, so is harder to find one available to do your job at the desired time. Depending on the emergence of the problem you may have at the moment, you need to wait for a while. Just think how hard is to replace the old pipes with the new ones. First of all, they need to be located. Sewage pipe is not something that is visual to the eye. They are buried deep in the ground, with each part pointing deeper and deeper, so the water will be able to go downwards by itself. Every house plan has all the sewage pipes included with them. Even if they are missing, because it is an old house with an individual septic field, sewage installation companies they do have special tools that are able to identify the exact place and the depth of the sewage pipes. Once the pipes have been found then they are able to work on them. The old pipes need to be excavated from the ground and removed. Imagine since you have a basement at home. The basement is around seven feet under the surface. That means that the pipes are lying minimum eight feet under the ground. Do you think you will be able to do it without an excavator?
Even when you install a brand new sewage system. You are building a new house so you will need a drain system. The sewage pipes need to go in the foundation of the house. So when it would be the best to place pipes from sewage? The best option would be right when the house’s foundation will be placed. In this way, digging up on the new concrete in order to place the sewer pipes will be able to be avoided.

They may be similar because they do the exact same thing, but they are not the same. First of all, sewage pipes are not the kind of pipes that can be easily fixed or replaced. They are usually much bigger and more stabilized than normal drain pipes. This is the reason why it should be able to cause you as fewer problems in the future as possible. For example, if the ground is not pressed properly, with the help of the water rain the ground will get soaked and with the pressure applied from the surface, it can dislocate the pipes. A sewage installation company is able to examine and place your sewer pipes in the best way possible.
Another reason which may differ a normal drain pipe from a sewer pipe is how has been isolated. When connecting two pipes in the bathroom or in the kitchen you need to screw a special ring around them and use Teflon tape between them. On the sewer main pipe, all that needs to be done is putting one inside the other. This is much easier to get connected since they are much bigger than normal ones and much more difficult to handle them. However, they cannot be left like that. Strong isolation must be applied between the pipes. If the isolation will be applied incorrectly or not at all, wastewater will be leaking from the pipes.
In order to prevent possible future leaks, a specific amount of silicone must be applied where the pipes are getting connected. Silicone is a liquid looking material, which once it gets exposed on the air it materializes and sticks the connected parts together, is it elastic and waterproof. Sometimes, you may face leaking issues from old silicone that was not applied correctly and after years it has been removed from the place causing a leak. A plumbing installation company will be able to remove the old silicone and apply the new one. Once they will finish their job, and the leaking has been fixed, then the pipes must be tested in case they didn’t the job properly, or they missed a spot.
